Would you like to present at our next conference? 

13th Annual Northern Colorado Writers Conference is May 4 & 5, 2018, Fort Collins Marriott.

Please email proposals to Director April Moore between June 1 and August 31 [We are now closed to proposals for the 2018 Conference] You may submit several proposed sessions in one email. It's recommended you submit more than one proposed session, as we often have presenters teach two 1-hour classes/workshops. Sessions are one hour long and because we cater to a variety of genres, we consider proposals for the following topics:

Craft classes/workshops:

All types of fiction
Creative nonfiction (memoir, essays, magazine writing)
Children's writing

The business of writing:

Query letters, proposals, synopses
Social media
Publishing industry and the various options
